Building Ideas is a compilation of the work of MJP Architects, organized around a series of ideas that have informed their work over 40 years.

With chapters ranging from Geometry, Pattern and Typology; History and Illusion; Conviviality; the Architecture of Learning; Structure and Materiality to Art and Architecture, the essayists discuss the broad depth of architectural discourse that has influenced the firm's work.  They also reflect on the wide range of interests that inspired Richard MacCormac's design philosophy and made him one of the most important architects of his generation.
The book also features a series of essays and articles written by MacCormac exploring a variety of topics, including his early enthusiasm for Wright's use of tartan grids, how to read London's urban fabric and speculative thinking around the future of office spaces.
